Black cohosh is native to moist deciduous woodlands in the Eastern U.S. It was originally classified as Cimicifuga racemosa but is now classified as Actaea racemosa. Their white flower spires, maxing out at 8 feet, stand out like tapered candles in the shady landscape. Provide a few hours of direct sunlight to optimize flowering.

Black cohosh has long been used in traditional plant medicine, both indigenously and across the seas to Asia and Europe.
